The Svijany brewery achieved an exceptional success during last few decades. From almost forgotten brewery at the risk of total closure in the end of the millennium, it rose to the forefront of beer consumption. Why? Local beer is still the same as it was in the middle of the previous century when the Czech beer gained worldwide fame. The beer in Svijany is still brewed by mashing twice, the golden drink ferments in open vats and slowly matures in lagering cellars at low temperatures.
